Therapeutic Touch Defined
Therapeutic Touch is a contemporary healing modality drawn from ancient practices and developed by Dora Kunz and Dolores Krieger. The practice is based on the assumptions that human beings are complex fields of energy, and that the ability to enhance healing in another is a natural potential.
Therapeutic Touch (TT) is used to balance and promote the flow of human energy. It is taught in colleges around the world and has a substantial base of formal and clinical research. This research has shown that TT is useful in reducing pain, improving wound healing, aiding relaxation, and easing the dying process. It can be learned by anyone with a sincere interest and motivation towards helping others.
In 1972, Dora and her longtime student and colleague Dolores Krieger, Phd, RN; developed Therapeutic Touch (TT). They developed a program for teaching the procedures and attitudes necessary for TT. Formal classes began at PHRC, where patients were referred by their physicians. The century-old farmhouse and the cabins around the grounds were filled with patients, and students who wanted to learn TT. Those who were able to participate in the life of Pumpkin Hollow did so, such as swimming in the creek, hiking the 130 acres of woodlands, and attending talks and discussions.
